My friends generally hate Polish way cooked beans meaning fasolka po bretonsku, they love dumplings though and savoury pancakes, they can't stand the beetroot soup even eggs with mayonnaise and spring onion seem new for them but they do like it. Ahbyeah and bigos, some do but they rather frown when smelling it, similar with the lard on bread, they despise it.. Weirdos!

Ham with cloves? Nice combination.... Were they stuck into the peel or inside ham?

I didn't really see the traces of the cloves, but you could taste and smell it. The meat was impregnated (?) with it. But it is a really powerful spice and should be used really carefully - a bit too much and it spoils everything.

I'm not a fan of fish is not my thing but fish head cheeks are actually tasty, fish head sup is ok too. I've eaten Korean food a few times, but when i comes down to a choice of bizarre foods for dinner i prefer cow heads over fish heads.

Fish?

Not the fish heads but the fish is cool. Fish is something I strongly believe in.

What`s the problem? Just like any other head. You cook it, pick soft parts like meat and fat from it, and leave hard bits on the plate.

What is wrong with great Polish soup, made from wild, dried, Polish mushrooms. The Polish mushrooms are the world's best, and are hard to come by here in the USA. Make sure to bring some for me, when you visit Poland.

So, how many different countries have you eaten mushrooms from?

I'm very interested to know how you can tell which side of Karkonosze that mushrooms come from, for instance.

I have been living in poland for two months now and am slowly getting uses to the large amounts of pig in my diet compared to England :-) my girlfriends grandad has a farm so we have a full freezer at all times, can't beat fresh and home grown meat :-)

I have had mushrooms from all over the world, and it must be the great Polish soil, but Polish Wild mushrooms are the best. They are so so much better. I can tell. I even, as a child, with my dad, and uncles, picked mushrooms here in the USA, and they were good, but the Polish ones are still better.

Why not?

People say they're especially good because of the weather. Plenty of Poles and Ukrainians in the UK like to pick them. Though I won't eat wild mushooms even in Poland unless they're picked by people who know what they're doing. Or they're kurki which are unmistakeable.

I know this may sound silly but I was always wondering if there are any shrooms growing in Polish woods that you know off?

Pgtx If you think this is an inappropriate question feel free to put me back into the recycling bin and I'll just search it on google.

Thanks.

I think it's your imagination.

Yes, due to excellent climate conditions and the most advanced technology of collecting and drying, Polish mushrooms are the best.
What do you think of these?:

Go out more often and in no time you’ll be an expert too.

Depends on the types you are looking for;). I usually pick (kozaki, prawdziwki, podgrzybki, gąski, maślaki, gołąbki, kanie, opieńki, rydze, kurki.) now there are other types too but they are more rare like gronówki.

Enough to take a few good books with illustrations.

I would read them a bit before going out picking mushrooms - I think it is better to learn from people who are in the know eventually - I am not a mushroom expert - I only pick those that I know to be palatable

Short, I was referring to the "magic mushrooms" not those "nice ones" you've mentioned.

Is this a test? Did you pick them yourself? Zrobiłeś zdjęcie sąsiadowi? W podkarpackim mamy do wyboru, od małego chodziłem na grzyby z dziadkiem.

and I know why - because it is some kind of gołąbek - but careful some gołąbki are not tasty at all

Will you trust those people ? Even experienced pickers make mistakes.....

Green - gołąbek zielony

Yes!!!

and I know why - because it is some kind of gołąbek -

Yes!
